STAFF AND WIRE REPORTS
ROCHESTER — St. John Fisher College announced on Wednesday that former Oneida High School football player Rob Kramer will be the new offensive coordinator for the football team.
Kramer, who has been on staff for four years, replaces Dave Parks who departed the Cardinals after eight years with the program for a position with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Kramer takes over an offense led by his younger brother Ryan at the quarterback position, the same position Rob held as a student-athlete at Fisher. The elder Kramer led the Cardinals to back-to-back NCAA Championship appearances in 2006 and 2007, with the ‘06 team making the Final Four before falling to eventual national champion Mount Union.
Kramer led Fisher deep into the NCAAs again in 2007, this time falling in the Elite Eight to the Purple Raiders. He finished his career in the Top 10 of several categories for the Cardinals, including touchdowns, completions, attempts, completion percentage and single-season passing yards.
Kramer, who has spent the last four seasons serving in various capacities, including quarterbacks, wide receivers and special teams coordinator, will also be the program’s recruiting coordinator.
He holds a bachelor’s degree from Fisher in business management with a concentration in marketing and completed his M.B.A. from the Bittner School of Business last year. He currently resides in Rochester.
The younger Kramer is coming off a junior campaign where he threw for 1,532 yards and 13 touchdowns and eight interceptions, and rushed for 964 yards with 12 scores. During his senior year at Oneida, he led the Indians to an 11-1 record and directed them to the Class B State Semifinals round.
